CBD Oil Tincture & Softgel Benefits
One important thing to review first, is that either method of CBD consumption will help you reach the same goal, therefore, achieving the various health benefits of CBD.
Our bodies have it’s own natural endocannabinoid system, or ECS, that helps regulate a number of body functions. This system is made up of a network of receptors, and the human body produces many of it’s own cannabinoids to help support itself.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of over 100 phytocannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Amazingly, CBD interacts indirectly with these receptors and can be used to support your body in obtaining wellness and balance.
Natural CBD Oil extract may help:
- Support joint and muscle function
- Support a good night’s sleep
- Promote healthy skin
- Support post-workout recovery
- Maintain a relaxed mood
With CBD softgels or CBD tinctures, the end goal is the same — Aquiring homeostasis.
CBD Oil Tinctures
Tinctures have been used in healing practices long before hospitals were up and operating. In fact, hemp tinctures were used in the 20th century prior to prohibition.
A tincture is a liquid form of supplement or remedy. In the case of CBD, the oil is separated from hemp using a process like ethanol or CO2 extraction. This breaks open the trichomes and causes the hemp to secrete CBD (and other beneficial phytocannabinoids).
From there, the hemp plants particles are strained from the product. The end product is a CBD-rich substance. On its own, CBD taste can be quite bitter, so many CBD products have an added flavoring to improve your experience.
What is used to flavor your CBD tincture is crucial to its potency. Some CBD products will use synthetic flavors to take away the pungency of a highly concentrated product.
You want to look for products that use a plant-based flavoring when looking for quality CBD. For example, Olani Organics uses organic essential oils such as mint and lemon for an all-natural tasting tincture.
Essential oils are an excellent choice for flavoring not just because they are natural, but also because they also work cohesively with CBD. The science behind aromatherapy is deeply rooted in the terpenes of the plant that the oils come from.
Terpenes are the aromatic chemicals that give oranges their citrusy scent, roses their beautiful smell and lemongrass its bitter taste. These aromatic chemicals are also responsible for the soothing feeling people get from lavender essential oils and increased cognitive performance from rosemary essential oils.
When these chemical compounds come into contact with other terpenes and phytocannabinoids, it actually strengthens the benefits of the overall product. This is called the “entourage effect.” Therefore, a true high-quality CBD product will be flavored with a terpene-rich product such as organic essential oils. These are the powerful botanical effects that we often refer to when we discuss Olani Organics CBD Oil Collection.
CBD Oil Softgels
A CBD Oil Softgel may be an easier method to consume your daily supplement because it is encapsulated. In an Olani CBD Oil product such as CBD Oil Softgels with Melatonin or Curcumin, our phytocannabinoid-rich broad spectrum hemp oil is engulfed by gelatin.
This gelatin plays a role in preserving the integrity of your CBD Oil products. Because the hemp extract is encapsulated in a gelatinous substance, the phytocannabinoids won’t disperse as easily. The softgel holds your CBD captive so that there are more cannabinoids for your system to digest preventing it from being prematurely broken down by the body. The gelatin in our CBD softgels is derived from bovines so the body can absorb the CBD Oil extract with more ease.
CBD softgels are hermetically sealed. That means the CBD extract inside is packed in an airtight environment keeping the phytocannabinoids safe from light and oxygen, which would otherwise degrade it’s potency.
Olani Organics softgels are specially formulated to increase bioavailability. Using cutting-edge nanoemulsion technology, our CBD products contain phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil particles as microscopic as 25 nanometers, making them more readily absorbable. Comparatively, most CBD products on the market have particles up to 40 times the size!
So Which is Better…CBD Oil Tinctures or Softgels?
In terms of effectiveness, both CBD Oil softgels and CBD Oil tinctures are equal. It really boils down to: method of choice and how fast you feel results. With both, consistency on a regular schedule is key. Either way, you will still get all the great benefits of incorporating CBD into your active lifestyle.
When it comes to ease, it’s hard to deny that CBD softgels are more comfortable on the stomach. They are easy to swallow and are formulated using nanoemulsion technology so you can be sure that they have second-to-none bioavailability. Also, there is no second guessing your serving amount as the serving size for CBD softgels is already formulated in its capsule. There’s no math or measurement. You just have to decide how often you need to take the supplement.
Some might find a CBD tincture a little too strong for their taste buds. Some just don’t like the taste. However, this process is quicker, so if you want the benefits of CBD immediately, a CBD tincture is the most efficient method.
Also, when made with quality ingredients, CBD tinctures do taste great. If you find placing it directly in your mouth is too strong, you are free to add CBD tinctures to things like tea, baked goods, water, smoothies and soup. Some even prefer to keep their tincture stored in the fridge for a super refreshing serving. But absorption will be affected if not consumed sublingually even with a water-soluable tincture.
So, which is better? CBD Oil Softgels or CBD Oil Tinctures? Honestly, it’s a matter of preference. For those looking for quick results, a CBD tincture is your go-to. For an easier way to supplement with CBD, a CBD softgel is probably your best option. Either way, both will provide you with high-quality, consistent results. And, if your serious about getting the most benefit out of CBD, it’s perfectly safe and often works well to use both methods and interchange your supplementation.
